A new analytical method for $$^{90}$$Sr utilizing accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) achieved better detection limits (1/10 of $$<$$0.1 mBq) than conventional $$beta$$-ray detection methods. In order to demonstrate the applicability of the AMS method to environmental samples of various properties, the present study analyzed impurity-rich water samples collected from the cooling water supply ponds of the Chornobyl NPP. The $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{88}$$Sr atomic ratio of the water samples (evaluated by $$beta$$-ray detection and ICP-MS), the expected detection limit, and the analysis method are reported in this meeting. Furthermore, the adaptability of the AMS method for $$^{90}$$Sr concentration (Bq/L) in water samples will be demonstrated by comparing the AMS method with the $$beta$$-ray detection method.
